Animal Adoptions for Conservation

Animal Adoptions for Conservation

Posted by Jen Brueggen on May 18th 2021

Conservation is humanity caring for the future.” - Nancy Newhall

Many of these conservation programs are too big for one person or one organization, so we partner with many and with you! By visiting our zoo and making purchases of food, encounters, and gifts, you’re contributing to conservation.

Our Adopt-An-Animal packages help out these animals and many other projects we have going on around the zoo, including local Roseate Spoonbill monitoring and supporting our local sea turtle hospital at the Whitney Labs in Marineland, Florida.

Order your adoption gift package in our Online Gift Shop as a gift for yourself or someone special:

Adopt Galapagos Tortoise

Adopt Lemurs

Adopt Sloths

Adopt Maximo, Saltwater Crocodile

Each of these gifts come with a plush toy of the animals, a photograph, personalized Certificate of Adoption, and a letter from our Zoo Director, John Brueggen.

Thank you for supporting our zoo, and all of these conservation programs and organizations we support, too!
